The last time she lost to An Seung in straight games was when the two met two years ago .

Siang started off brilliantly and took a seven-point lead within six minutes. Sindhu made many simple mistakes which the Korean player took advantage of. She quickly took the lead to 16-8 and in the end Sindhu handed her the first game after losing 10 game points. The story remained the same in the second game as well. Till the break, Sindhu tried to make a comeback but after that the game became one-sided. Sindhu on Thursday defeated Busanan Ongbomrangphan of Thailand 21-16, 12-21, 21-15 in 67 minutes.
